What really sets Gravitas’ releases apart is the instrumentation and spiritual vibe many of the songs give off. This can especially be heard in tracks like and “Theogony” by BARDZ and “Spelunker” by Ransom. If you’re looking for more of a heavy bass feel, there’s plenty of songs to choose from like “Filthy as Eva” by Buzz Junior, “Illustrated” by Bamboo, “Monolith” by Sullust, and “Relic” by Deltanine and Sayzar. Wrapping up Virtus in Sonus V is “Find Your Way” by Drishti Beats and DAYZ, a smooth vocal track with memorable production.
